So, about a year ago, I started sharing my self-care journey with you, my obsession with getting better sleep, and some of the things I do and use to make this happen. Well, today, I am extremely EXCITED to tell you that with the recent invention of Big Fig Mattresses, I can finally check finding the best mattress for a plus size person off my list! This a big deal because for years, I have been complaining about my bed. I tried adding mattress pads, memory foam toppers, went through a dozen different pillows, started getting chiropractic adjustments, bought a one size fits all mattress but just like clothes one size did NOT fit all. So when I heard about the first and only mattress designed for the bigger figure (get it, BigFig!?!), I had to know more. Thanks to Natalie In The City for the introduction, I was able to hear more about this bed, it’s 101-night trial, the 20-year warranty it comes with and all the research to back up the claims. After that, I didn’t need any more convincing to be sold.
Why? Here’s why I gave Big Fig a try:
- ThermoGel treated fabric lowers body temperature for an actively cool sleeping experience.
- Gel Infused Latex Foam that has been perforated for comfort and airflow.
- High density, 80 ILD Edge Foam adds extra strength and solid edge support.
- Tufted In 16 Places to prevent the materials from shifting over time.
- 3 layers of high-density poly foam for no-sag cushioning.
- Big Fig Foundation (included with every order) supports 5X the weight of standard foundation.
- The Big Fig Mattress is built specifically to support continued application of body weight of up to 500lbs, or a couple with a distributed weight of 500-1000 lbs.
- 1600 Individually Wrapped Coils 50% more than the average premium innerspring mattress on the market.
At Big Fig, their mission to align with the Body Positivity movement, to create a vision based on self-love, body acceptance and positive life choices. Believing the industry needed fewer mattress lines that claim to “work for everyone”, and more mattress lines that can truly support all body figures over a period of 20 years. Because everybody is entitled to a comfortable long-lasting mattress designed to support them, and every person is entitled to the truth about the mattress they invest in.
How does it feel?
Oh my gosh girl, it’s so strange. It’s somehow firm yet soft and every night my wife and I feel like we’re being cradled in a soft and supportive grip. It’s by far the most supportive piece of furniture I’ve ever owned and over the past month, my sleep has been deep and invigorating. As I am reviewing this mattress, I am reminded of something that’s representative of a much bigger issue. As plus-size shoppers, we have been conditioned to make do with things that aren’t ideal and picking out a mattress is not the time to make do so I am so here for brands that specifically cater to the bigger figure!
